Nonsense remains nonsense, regardless of theme, because people will believe whatever they want to.
Infuriatingly, they often prop up their ideas with constructs that wouldn’t get them through a philosophy 101 class.
Better to use a word game as an excuse than to ask hard epistemological questions, I suppose.
- If God is good, why is there evil?
- The minimum wage helps the poor by offering a “living-wage.”
- It does not matter what you study in college, you’ll still find a good job.
- Relationships don’t matter.
- If God can do anything, can he make a rock so big even he can’t pick it up?
I mean, with a little cognitive dissonance thrown in there, people will hold onto the most unintelligent of notions for their entire lives.
It is no more possible for God than for the weakest of His creatures to carry out both of two mutually exclusive alternatives; not because His power meets an obstacle, but because nonsense remains nonsense even when we talk it about God.
